Since my last post, I’ve gotten on track. You can read about my come to Jesus here: Last log entry
I have taken the last 10 days or so off from training. No core work, no walking – only therapy. ART, Graston, NMT, rolling and a LOT of direct trigger point work. I let myself get way off track – I admit it.
I’ll be getting work done 2x a week from here on out to stay on top. PREHAB.
Lately, and around the holiday my diet becomes a struggle and a real issue at times. This has been my focus since last week as it has lacked a lot of effort on my end. Luckily, as long as I stay focused, this wont be an issue.
Normal warm-up which you can read about HERE McGill Big 3
Squat in Inzer Grippers
CONV 2″ block deads
Leg press 4×6
I think the day went well! I haven’t squatted in a few weeks and wanted to test the glute/hip area out with some raw squats and it passed. I didn’t see a reason to load up some weight and put some gear on since I needed to see how the hip is doing. Much progress. Mani hapi teim.
A little tightness but about 85% healthy — and in powerlifting 85% is pretty much healthy at this point!
I’ll be adding gear back this coming week and will be putting some weight on the bar!
Test passed – now time to train.
